Joyful Life

A Unique Interpretation of James 1:1

I was reading James a few weeks ago and when I read James 1:1 a lightbulb appeared over my head. So I said “Well, I do not need to read anymore for today.” Yep, my Bible reading consisted of one verse.

James 1:1 states:

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,…

James 1:1 (NIV)

Then it dawned on me that while James uses this to introduce himself to his audience (the twelve tribes of Israel), shouldn’t this line be the first line of our obituary?

Michele Kearns, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, went home to be with the Lord after a life of serving others.

Just a little something to think about.

Have a joy-filled day and God bless you.
